Verizon iPhone update news still MIA
The iOS 4.3.2 update will, at a minimum, address a pair of critical problems that have arisen since v4.3 and v4.3.1, an Apple source informs. The first is with FaceTime, which has been suffering from freezes and out-of-place images suddenly appearing. The second relates to Verizon iPad 2s, which may have trouble connecting to the carrier's 3G network.
Also slated are security fixes in components like WebKit, and an assortment of more minor changes. Still unknown is whether the firmware will solve battery issues, or apply to Verizon iPhones, which have been stuck on iOS 4.2.6 since the device's launch window. iOS 4.3.2 is rumored to be going live in less than two weeks.
